First up, if this thread is in the wrong catigory, please let me know, but there wherent any catigorys targeting windows and cause i think its a hardware problem of some kind i aswell trie it here
So to say it straight, Windows XP isnt booting do too an unknown reason.
It starts up the WinXP ProSP1 x64 boot screen as normal, the bar moves as normal, it goes black as normal, and crashes the whole computer, which is not normal.
Yea, instead of booting it just shows me a BSoD saying that my computer has been shut down due too an Fatal System Error.
More specificly it showes "STOP: c000021a" and that the 'System Status' is "0xc0000221 (oxoo2bb800 0x00000000)", which i think are error codes, but i cant find any specifics about them.
I also tried System Repair, which did nothing, and also tried running fixboot from the cd, which again did nothing, ans also also tried to run safe Mode, Which didnt exactly help, but it showed that the system wouldnt go passt the file "acpitabl.dat", which could be helpfull if i could find anyfing usefull about it
Right now i am just doomed as no tips worked, and i dont find ANY specifics about the specific Error i have here.
I REALLY hope that someone can help couse i REALLY like that computer as a kind of retro-xp-thing
Oh and by the way, i used an image that i downloaded LINK REMOVED here couse i figured using an early but offical image and updating it with offical updates would get me less troubles than that barly working sp3 disc i hab before, wich didnt really work and would give me an unfinshed system, wich sucked.
And one last thing to note is that Windows XP is technicly not installed yet, since i am trying to boot into the second install phase, NOT into the oparating system.
But thats all i have to say
Hope someone can help
